Elmhurst College has the resources it needs to provide physics majors with a thorough, comprehensive and varied education. Here’s some of what you’ll find here:
Schaible Science Center houses classrooms, introductory and advanced laboratories, and extensive computing facilities designed especially for students in the sciences and engineering.
The Bates Observatory, located atop the Science Center, is home to four telescopes ranging from the small and portable 5" telescope to the main 14" telescope permanently fixed in a computer-controlled mount.
A separate building houses the College's own 750,000-volt Cockcroft-Walton accelerator.
We constantly plan new upgrades to our facilities to stay on the cutting edge; recent across-the-board upgrades mean that student lab experiences in every physics course will be performed with new equipment. As science evolves, so does Elmhurst.
